1. Trayvon Martin. Parents Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin wrote, "Rest In Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin," which was released on Tuesday by publisher Spiegel & Grau. The book, which took 5 years of enduring grief for the parents to write, is dedicated to celebrating their son's life. “Most people say rest in peace,” Fulton said. “We want people to know that even in his death, he lives on through us. He lives on through you.” Trayvon would have been 22 years old today.

While this can be hard on the heart at times, it means we must look closely for what they do give and where they can meet us. For these offerings are valuable too.
